The ground breaking ceremony for one of the cities newest attractions was Friday at 11a.m.

The 35,000 square foot project received its final permits in late 2015 and is predicted to open its doors in late 2016.  

Alamo Drafthouse will be located between Staples and Yorktown and will feature 7 movie screens with a restaurant and a cafe area. 

The Alamo Drafthouse caters to movie enthusiasts who love to munch and drink while watching a movie.  They will offer a variety of entrees ranging from $7-$11 and beer from $3-$8.

The project is said to be estimated around 5.8 million dollars.
